Goulburn River Valley

This beautiful river-meets-valley region is bursting with creative talent, engaging events, colourful history and intriguing collections. With a long history of pioneers, heroes and scoundrels, immerse yourself in rustic homesteads, shearing sheds and rural outbuildings – all standing testament to the thriving rural communities of a different era.

Acclaimed public galleries and creative spaces show photography, gems, sculpture, Indigenous collections and contemporary artworks. Central to the offering is the Shepparton Art Museum – affectionately known as SAM – where you’ll find one of Australia’s most important collections of ceramics.

Be surprised and delighted by the MooovingArt cows as you move about the region. Take the time to enjoy the gardens sculptured with Australian natives and bush-tucker plants. Delve into the rich Indigenous history and culture of the region including the Aboriginal Street Art Project featuring vibrant murals through central Shepparton and the newly opened Mitchelton Gallery of Aboriginal Art.

Goulburn River Valley is home to diversity and multiculturalism, offering a mix of artistic and cultural experiences and stories through its people, events, museums and galleries.
